Software Installation Guide

This section discusses errors and omissions from the Sun Cluster Software Installation Guide for Solaris OS.

Step Missing to Install Packages for the RSMAPI and SCI-PCI Adapters

The procedure “How to Configure Sun Cluster Software on All Nodes (scinstall)” does not include instructions to install the Sun Cluster software packages that support the RSMAPI and SCI-PCI adapters. The installer utility does not automatically install these packages.

Follow these steps to install these additional packages from the Sun Cluster 3.1 CD-ROM. Install these packages before you install Sun Cluster framework software.

  1. Determine which packages you must install.

    The following table lists the Sun Cluster 3.1 packages that each feature requires and the order in which you must install each group of packages.

  2. Use the following command to install the additional packages.

    Replace arch with sparc or x86 and replace ver with 8 (for Solaris 8) or 9 (for Solaris 9).

    # cd /cdrom/suncluster_3_1Packages
    # pkgadd -d . packages
